Default First Environmentalists???

Check this out, ‘Were the Romans the First Environmentalists?’, Were the Romans the First Environmentalists?, “Archaeologists believe that the Romans utilized heat and water more efficiently than we do today. They say that the Romans made these two resources simply "work harder" in their dwellings. Was it cleverness or just smarts? Maybe it was both. Even today, we must have a point of reference to comprehend how civilizations' utilization of non-renewable fuel sources is required to immerse into a dialogue of how green energy came about. Romans also ushered in sewers, street lighting, postcards, glazing, high rise apartments and concrete”.

I recall seeing something about how they were able to harness a water source using canals and tunnels.
